District 54 Food Pantry Donations

During this unprecedented school year our six District 54 food pantries have been utilized more than ever before.  We know that many of our families and community members look to support these pantries especially as the holidays approach.  At this time, for safety reasons, we are not accepting physical supply donations, however monetary donations would be greatly appreciated and well utilized.  District 54 has set up a Food Pantry Donation page for interested families and community members through the Infinite Campus Portal.   To make a monetary donation, please log in to the Infinite Campus Portal HERE and follow the below example:

Log into Infinite Campus the same way you would normally.  On the left hand side you will see an option “School Store”.

Clicking “Shop” will bring you to the below screen.  If your school has set up a donation page, you will see the school’s donation item along with the D54 food pantry.  If your school does not have an additional donation page you will only see the D54 food pantry icon.   You then click “View” in order to see the description and make a donation.
